Isle of Man Car Races 1904 1953 (eBook, ePUB)
8,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In 1904 the Isle of Man became the cradle of car racing in the British Isles when its self-governing status enabled the Island's public roads to be closed for motor racing. Starting in 1905, the Island's early Tourist Trophy car races led directly to the motorcycle TT Races which have continued virtually without interruption to this day. The Island's first phase of car racing extended from 1904 to 1922, on various TT courses varying in length from 52 to 37 miles. Racing resumed from 1933 to 1937 on street circuits through Douglas and Onchan and a third series of races took place between 1947 and 1953 on the Willaston Circuit on the outskirts of Douglas. This book tells in detail the story of the Island races, the drivers, the cars, the fights against political opposition and the contribution made by the Island's races to the development of production cars over fifty years.

Iceman's Dream (eBook, ePUB)
3,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In 1953, the Canadian government moved several Inuit families 1,200 miles from their coastal village in eastern Quebec to remote islands in the High Arctic. Why? Was it to protect the Inuit people and their culture from civilization as the government claimed, or for economic and political purposes as the evidence suggest? Perhaps it was a bit of both? Did the Inuit go willingly, or were they coerced?Either way, almost everything that could go wrong inevitably did, and it would be a half century before the myriad questions would be resolved. In the interim, the Inuit suffering was immeasurable.A fatherless, nine-year-old boy was among the Inuit exiles. "Noot," as he was called, was peculiar in many ways. Foremost, he was genetically "unique." Some believed he was cursed and they feared him. Others mocked or simply ignored him. He was the token outcast among a forsaken people.As it were, an unfortunate accident and Noot's heroic rescue of a young girl alters his status, but he is unaware. He has been stricken by illness to the brink of death. Before releasing him, it leaves an indelible mark. Noot is plagued with a strange dream. And it proves a calling on his life that will help save his people.

PI Lena Jones learns that old sins never die; they’re still taking lives. When Lena's partner, Pima Indian Jimmy Sisiwan, is arrested in the remote town of Walapai Flats in northern Arizona, Lena closes the Desert Investigations office and rushes to his aid. What she finds is a town up in arms over a new uranium mine located only 10 miles from the magnificent Grand Canyon. Jimmy’s sister-in-law, founder of Victims of Uranium Mining, has been murdered, but the opposing side has taken hits, too. Ike Donohue, the mine’s public relations man, is found shot to death, which casts suspicion on Jimmy and his entire family. During her investigation, Lena finds not only a community decimated by dangerous mining practices but also a connection to actor John Wayne and the mysterious deaths resulting from the 1953 filming of The Conqueror. Gabe Boone, a wrangler on that doomed film, is still alive, but the only person the aged man will confide in is John Wayne’s ghost. It’s up to Lena to penetrate Gabe’s defenses and uncover the decades-old tragedy that no one in Walapai Flats wants to talk about. By delving into the area’s history, Lena discovers the reason that high-ranking government officials want those crimes to remain under wraps. Desert Wind, like the others in Betty Webb’s Lena Jones mystery series, is based on the facts of true-crime cases. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marguerite Gavin.

The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of Ame...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

National Book Critics Circle Award, Nonfiction, 2011 In this epic, beautifully written masterwork, Pulitzer Prize–winning author Isabel Wilkerson chronicles one of the great untold stories of American history: the decades-long migration of black citizens who fled the South for northern and western cities in search of a better life. From 1915 to 1970, this exodus of almost six million people changed the face of America. Wilkerson interviewed more than a thousand people, and gained access to previously untapped data and official records, to write this definitive and vividly dramatic account of how these American journeys unfolded, altering our cities, our country, and ourselves. With stunning detail, Wilkerson tells this story through the lives of three unique individuals: Ida Mae Gladney, who in 1937 left sharecropping and prejudice in Mississippi for Chicago, where she achieved quiet blue-collar success and, in old age, voted for Barack Obama when he ran for an Illinois state senate seat; sharp and quick-tempered George Starling, who in 1945 fled Florida for Harlem, where he endangered his job fighting for civil rights, saw his family fall, and finally found peace in God; and Robert Foster, who left Louisiana in 1953 to pursue medicine, becoming the personal physician to Ray Charles as part of a glitteringly successful career that allowed him to purchase a grand home where he often threw exuberant parties. Wilkerson brilliantly captures her subjects’ first treacherous and exhausting cross-country trips by car and train and their new lives in colonies that grew into ghettos, as well as how they changed their new cities with southern food, faith, and culture and improved them with discipline, drive, and hard work. Both a riveting microcosm and a major assessment, The Warmth of Other Suns is a bold, remarkable work, a superb account of an “unrecognized immigration” within our own land. Through the breadth of its narrative 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robin Miles, Ken Burns (introduction). Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/brll/002777/bk_brll_002777_sample.mp3.

Als er ab 1953 für einige Jahre bei Meinungsumfragen alle Trompeter überrundete, die maßgeblichen Kollegen des modernen Jazz – Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis und Clifford Brown – ebenso wie Louis Armstrong, Roy Eldridge und andere Giganten der Tradition auf hintere Plätze verwies, war fast etwas wie ein kleines Wunder geschehen. Da wurde urplötzlich ein längst volljähriger Mann gefeiert, der aussah wie ein hübscher, schüchterner Teenager und weder mit virtuoser Fingerfertigkeit, noch mit Klangvolumen auftrumpfen konnte“. Chet Baker zählt zu den einflussreichsten Jazz-Tropetern überhaupt. Auf dieser Doppel-CD befinden sich nun einige seiner wichtigsten Stücke auf 2CD zum Spezial-Preis!
